Greek Yogurt & Milk Substitute for Heavy Cream

Kitchen Crew


Greek yogurt is very versatile and can be used in place of many creamy dairy products as a healthier alternative. For it to work for heavy cream, Greek yogurt needs to be thinned with an equal part of whole milk. There is a natural tang with Greek yogurt, so consider the flavor profile of the dish when substituting. This heavy cream substitute works well in smoothies, dips, dressings, soups, and cool sauces.
